The tally of ISIS terrorists killed by the MOAB bomb dropped Thursday by the U.S. military in Afghanistan is up to 94, Afghan officials say.
Initial reports had the death toll at 36 Islamic State (ISIS) operatives, but a new assessment by the government has scaled that number upward as more information of the aftermath of the bomb drop comes in.
“The number of Daesh [ISIS] fighters killed in the US bomb in Achin district jumped to 94, including four commanders,” a Nangarhar Province spokesman told the media on Saturday.
“Our team is in the area and they are doing clearance, so the figure might change as they find more bodies,” a spokesman for the Afghan Ministry of Defense said. full story
